A Bangladeshi young man was allegedly beaten to death by members of Border Security Force of India near Burimari border at Patgram in Lalmonirhat on early Sunday.
Locals and Border Guard Bangladesh officials said BSF soldiers on Saturday night picked up Manjurul Alam, a man in his twenties and cattle trader in profession, from the border when he trespassed on Indian land to bring cattle.
Later, he was found dead by the border on Sunday morning.
His body had marks of beating, they said.
Manjurul Alam was the son of Asadul Islam, a resident of Ufarmara village at Burimari upazila.
With Manjarul, the number of border killing in Lalmonirhat rises to three in the current month while two other Bangladeshi citizens were picked up by BSF.
Later, BGB members of Burimari camp recovered the body and sent it to Patgram Police Station, said Patgram police station officer-in-charge Sazzad Hossian.
Major Syed Moniruzzaman, acting commanding officer of BGB Battalion-61, said they sent a letter to BSF protesting at the incident but was yet to receive any response.
